FREDERICTON - A review in New Brunswick recommends cutting the number of legislative officers from eight to six.
The recommendation is among 33 contained in a report released today by Bernard Richard, the province's former ombudsman.
In April, Premier David Alward appointed Richard to review the mandates of legislative officers.
Richard says there should also be a moratorium on the creation of new legislative officer positions.
His report also recommends that a formal complaint system be established for people who are not satisfied with the work of a legislative office.
Legislative officers in New Brunswick include the auditor general, the chief electoral officer and ombudsman.
